We (meaning me and the girls) get up at 6.30am and between then and 10is its feed them and clean clean clean then aleena and sama will have a snack and aleena goes down for a nap at 11am thn its hubby fed and clean up after the inlaws and then all day after that inbetween all the tantrums im cleaning and dealing with potty training....tantrums and a CRAWLING little ne im happy about 2 things 1.Sama is doing extremely well at potty training and Aleena is crawling but the tantrums that big sister is doing lately wares me down to the bone and by the time shes dne and im in bed im so tiredim out for the count the hubby says im dead to the world lol

Oh my oh my......

My world has been a whimsical of adventure since my last post i have been ill for 14 days now and today.... today is the first day i have been able to keep food in me since it all started. It feels weird to feel not so hungry anymore and not so thirsty and not so dizzy and not faint at that but thank god I'm on the mend.

As many know the month of Ramadan has started and we have 12 days left until the fasting is over and our life becomes somewhat normal again I'm not actually finding it too hard and if i do its feeling hungry and feeding the kiddos but hey us mothers come strong for a reason right. So just to let you all know i have a list of to dos and I'm not dead I'm alive just sliding along like a snail... so for now i will leave you with a few pics xxx
If you click the image it will take you to more of my pics and if you are a user of flickr leave me your stream so i can have a hooters i love photos i do!!!

An update...a bit long but worth it

Ok so my life is somewhat good right now im over insomnia (which is poo), the insomnia that is. Honestly anyone who suffers i have a few tips if you need them!!!
  • Let someone have the kids i mean bath them and put them to bed the whole works!!!! or even out at the grandparents for the night.
  • Light some candles(safely place them in the bathroom) and have a hot/warm bath, read a book like i do or just do what makes you relax
  • And when thats done have a warm non caffine drink and a lettuce sandwich yup you got it a lettuce sandwich is what i had and i slept like a baby although i had my kids to awaken me the next morning at 6am but cant go wrong with 7 hours sleep!!!
I did a layout or should i say finished one i have been working on its not 12x 12 i think its smaller then a4 slightly but i like it i really do i havent left 12 x 12 but its nice for the change can you see my use of alphas those leftover gems where just sitting on my table and asking to be used somehow and we all know how i love using them for something so here its to pop my cardstock up and a frame for it the dimension it gives is absaloutly cool you should try it you would be surpised how those little leftovers make great details to a page(and i know my ribbon is wonky but i fixed it now my adhesive stash is built up again)

Dont you just love the little techniques we make that give effects your 100% happy with so im here to share another please dont mind the photos they where taken with my mobile phone(i was going to retake them but my battery too my camera is on charge for my first shoot tomorrow woohoo tomorrow morning i will redo them and post them on here so check back for clearer images)

i used the woodware large butterfly punch (photo taken from the internet)

Take this punch and level the butterflys antenna up with the edge of your paper so it should just be chomping the top of the wings and the antenna area like below

Now do this all along levelling up the corners if you can if not ill show you how to fix that next all the way along where you want that border

When you have finished it should look like this

now the gaps in between each wing if you have them just round them off using your craft knife

And it should look like this when finished i will show you my layout when i have daylight to take the photo and also another way to use this technique

Again sorry about the pictures ill cheer you up with some cheery photos tomorrow hehe
love yall
